How Small Business Week got its start

In 1979, the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) business centres in British Columbia’s Lower Fraser Valley pooled their resources to organize a week of activities for entrepreneurs.

Two years later, BDC decided to launch BDC Small Business WeekTM™ across Canada. 

The initiative was quickly adopted by Canada’s business community and BDC Small Business Week™ has become a not-to-be-missed annual event for entrepreneurs.

Here in Calgary, ATB has powered the platform for the last 4 years.
